In an ideal world, gadgets should be completely integrated for seamless access and control. Quite often, you may feel the need to access your phone data when typing away at your computer. It could be an important presentation stored on your phone, a crucial text message or just a peek at the recent vacation snapshots. Fortunately, all that content locked in your smartphone need not be transferred to your PC before it can be accessed. You can easily find a number of apps which not only mirror your phone’s display right on your desktop or laptop, but also enable you to back up the phone content on your PC. In most cases, the phone and the PC connect wirelessly. Here are a few options worth trying out.

Windows Connect: A convenient way to mirror your Android screen on to a Windows 10 device is to use the built-in Connect feature. For this, you must have the Windows 10 Anniversary Update or a later edition installed as it supports Miracast by default (Miracast uses WiDi standard for direct connection between a device and a display) and you need not set up any third-party app . Alternatively, click on ‘system’ under ‘settings’ and select ‘projection to this PC’ from the options on the left.
